What Is Vitrectomy?

Vitrectomy is a type of eye surgery used to treat problems of the eye’s retina and vitreous. In this surgery, an ophthalmologist may:

  • remove blood or other substance keeping light from focusing properly on the retina
  • remove scar tissue that is wrinkling / tearing the retina and causing poor vision
  • help repair a retina that has detached (pulled away) from the eye wall
  • remove a foreign object stuck inside the eye from an injury

During vitrectomy, the ophthalmologist removes some or all of the vitreous from the middle of your eye. This vitreous is replaced with either a salt water (saline) solution or a bubble which is made of gas or oil.

When Is vitrectomy done?

Your ophthalmologist may recommend a vitrectomy if you have one of these diseases or conditions:

  • diabetic retinopathy, with bleeding or scar tissue affecting the retina or vitreous gel
  • some forms of retinal detachment (when the retina lifts away from the back of the eye)
  • macular hole (a hole or tear in the macula)
  • macular pucker (wrinkles or creases in the macula)
  • an infection in the eye called endophthalmitis
  • severe eye injury
  • certain problems during cataract surgery

Complications and risks

Vitrectomy procedures are an effective surgery and severe complications are rare. According to the American Society of Retina Specialists, most surgeries have a 90 percent success rate.

In rare cases, however, complications can occur, especially in immune-compromised individuals and those with a history of eye conditions or surgery.

Possible side effects of vitrectomy procedures include:

  • inflammation or redness, swelling, and pain
  • bleeding inside the eye
  • infection
  • increased pressure (glaucoma) or reduced pressure in the eye
  • cataract formation or progression of existing cataracts
  • surgical injury, such as a wrong cut or tear, resulting in the need for further corrective surgery
  • swelling of the central part of the retina
  • change in vision, requiring the need for new eyeglasses
  • loss of night vision, blurriness, or depth perception
  • double vision
  • retinal detachment
  • dislocation or discoloration of the intraocular lens
  • macular pucker or a wrinkle in the retina
